Vauxhall VX220 Turbo

The Vauxhall VX220 is a mid-engined targa-topped two-seater introduced by General Motors in early 2001. This model was created with the assistance of Lotus Cars, based in Hethel, Norfolk and built alongside the Elise S2. It is actually derived from the Elise Chassis and features a GM engine in lieu of the K-Series Rover engine. It carries the internal model identification Lotus 116 as well as the code name Lotus Skipton. The non-turbo version houses an Ecotec L61 2.2-litre engine giving out 147hp (110kW) while only weighing 870kg. The turbo variant, which arrived in 2003, is equipped with a 2.0-litre LSJ Ecotec engine producing 200hp (149kW) and 930kg in weight. A final version was also available, the track-focused VXR220 sports car which featured a turbo engine capable of delivering around 220hp (164kW). Its distinct 16-inch (406mm) front wheels enabled the installation of high-performance tyres to improve its road-handling. The VX220 has been widely praised among critics for its excellent driving capacity, with the 2.2 NA (non-turbo) model receiving particularly attention and being deemed to have a better cost-benefit ratio than the Lotus. The production of the VX220 ended in the year 2005.
